About Me

Contact us: megan@mappingmegan.com

An adrenaline junkie and incredibly active traveler, I’ve racked up quite the adventure resume; skydiving over the Swiss Alps, walking among the mighty Elephants of Africa, and having summited the highest free-standing mountain in the world (Kilimanjaro).

An Australian with a degree in journalism, I developed an insatiable hunger to travel the world and share my experiences with the world. I have been blogging about my adventures now since 2007, having visited 100+ countries across all seven continents.

So strong was the desire to see this incredible world, that at one stage I sold my home and belongings to travel full time and have never looked back since.

My travels focus on cultural immersion, authentic discovery, and incredible journeys, with a strong passion for ecotourism and aim to promote responsible travel experiences. My sincere hope is that my travel experiences help to inspire you to see the world for yourself and that my practical tips give you the knowledge and confidence to do so.

What Mapping Megan is About

As mentioned above, my journeys are about  adventure, discovery, cultural immersion, and exploration. I believe that adventure can be achieved at any age, and that there’s no right or wrong way to travel. Travel is a personal journey and an individual experience, and it really doesn’t matter where your travel style falls in the whole tourist vs traveler debate.

Adventure means different things to different people, so whether your idea of adventure is backpacking through Europe, camping on an erupting volcano, or sitting aboard a luxury cruise through the Amazon, I cover it all!

I have a strong passion for ecotourism and aim to promote responsible travel experiences; conserving resources and minimizing my impact on the environments around the world to ensure the places I travel to and the reasons why I travel to those destinations remain intact for future visits by myself and future generations.
